We have replaced the lamp 2 years ago and it worked great. This time we replaced it and the warning still shows on the screen. I checked the lamp hours and it says 2484 hrs. so I put the old lamp back in and it still said 2484 hrs. I cannot see any reset for the hours. (I was told the hour log was built into the lamp) Please advise Greg C.

i just had the same problem i took the top of the projector off and cleaned the color wheel and sensor seemed to have fixed the problem that is for now. seems to happen to me once a year on the dot but last time it was warranty. good luck hope it helps.
hi, its because ur lamps life comes on its end. its time to replace the lamp. after replacing u should rest the lamp timer to zero. if u have already replaced the lamp do the following,if not also.
1 Press and hold the Exit (up arrow) button on the projector for 5 seconds to display the total used lamp time. 2.Press Auto button the projector or on the remote control to reset the lamp hour to "0". 3. Wait about 5 seconds to let the OSD disappear. ok
Just a quick couple of notes about your projector. It is a DLP projector (not LCD) and as such the machine as no air filters to clean. It does have air intake and air exhaust grilles, but no air filters to clean. This next part comes directly from the owner' manual for your projector:
When the lamp operation time exceeds 2000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.
Your machine is designed to give visual warning messages at 1500 hours used, and 1900 hours used. Did you see any visual warning about lamp life over the past few months?
If you were experiencing an overheating problem, a "TEMPERATURE!!" message would flash up on the screen just before the unit shuts down. If there is no warning, you don't have a heat problem.
If you have a replacement lamp available, install it and reset the lmap hours according to your user manual. If you don't have the manual, google it on the web (it available).
Have a technician check out the fans of this unit as well.
I would suggest you hook up a UPS to this Projector , because eventhough you might not have power dips or failures - the power supplied to appliances is not spike free and Projectors struggle to handle this well.
